NAACP president to give sermon on race in Charlotte


CHARLOTTE - The president of the state chapter of the NAACP and the founder of the "Moral Monday" movement will give a sermon on race at Myers Park Baptist Church in Charlotte. The Charlotte Observer report the service led by the Rev. William Barber will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday. It's being presented by the church and the Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice. Barber's sermon comes as Charlotte deals with racial issues that erupted in protests following the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, a black man killed by police. In a conference call Thursday, Barber urged civil rights activists not to take the election of Republican Donald Trump as president personally. He also urged them to be even more public in their non-violent protests "for the cause of love and justice."
